Upline, 1 Hartford Square Suite 215, New Britain, CT 06052, USA
About the Event
In this class we will be discovering some of the fundamentals of rope using two Hishi chest harnesses. "Hishi" means diamond, and we will build these diamonds using a mix of directional frictions, lock off frictions and by learning to control tension. This class is suitable if you are brand new rope or dusting your old skills off, it can be attempted as a self-tie, but we will not be going over those modifications as that class will be offered at another time. You will need any where from 2 to 4 hanks of rope (the presenter uses 30ft hanks) and it never hurts to have some shorties (15ft, 10ft, 5ft, etc.). The amount needed will vary depending on body size of the person being tied.
The following precautions will be in place for this event:
- Masks will be mandatory inside the building at all times except when eating or drinking.
- Our capacity (guests, staff, and presenters included) will be capped at 20 people.
- Events will only be held when every person present has signed a vaccination waiver statement.
The vaccination waiver text will be as follows: "I, [scene name], hereby affirm that I have received my final dose of an FDA-approved or FDA emergency use authorized COVID-19 vaccine 14 days or more prior to today's date of [today's date]. I understand and agree that if the information provided here is inaccurate or false that I will be automatically and permanently banned from all of Upline's physical and virtual spaces with no appeals process available to me."
ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Miss Acacia has been creating art in rope bondage and suspension since 2014. With a preference for symmetry and a focus on detail, her goal is to create a tie that works for her bottom’s body while still showcasing the beauty of rope. Starting with self-suspension, she progressed to suspending others with an understanding of both sides of the suspension experience. She continues to focus on the fundamentals no matter how far her rope journey takes her, because she wants to understand the how and the why behind the structure of each tie. Once she feels she understands the purpose of each part, she is able to use them to transition and contort her bottom with the right ties for that sequence. She is frequently brainstorming with fellow rope enthusiasts to improve harnesses and make the most sustainable ties for her bottoms. In teaching, she focuses on making sure that bottoms and tops both grasp what the rope should look and feel like. She teaches for understanding of how each part and pattern works instead of memorizing patterns so that her students are better equipped to continue their education.
